May be viral: Most ear infections, up to 85%, are caused by viruses that won't respond to ab. There is also the possibility that his infection is due to a bacteria that's resistant to amoxil (amoxicillin). When you say he has been on 3d of Amoxil (amoxicillin) are you counting the first day as the day you started the medication? If so then he has only had 2 days worth and it might be that you need to give amox more time. Good luck.

Fever & ear infectio: high fever & irritability after full 72 hours of amoxil (amoxicillin) means either the bacterial infection is resistant to amoxil (amoxicillin) or a viral infection, he needs a F/U appt with his pediatrician ASAP. continue treatment , control fever & keep him hydrated at the mean time. I hope he gets better soon, good l
